ABOUT TOPOLOBAMPO

Rick and Deann Bayless opened Topolobampo in 1989, a few years after opening Frontera Grill. The two restaurants were designed to have the same front door, but that would be one of the few things they would share. If Frontera rocks and claps, Topolo is the sleek, artful sister. She’s also the more adventurous one.
